Best Foot Forward Card

Here’s a card I designed for Lisa’s Party tonight.  This Wicked Stamp Set has been so popular and I absolutely love it myself!  And what a great little sentiment “put your best foot forward” to place with the witch’s feet.  Remember, you don’t always have to use the full image when stamping.  Here I’ve only stamped the bottom portion of the witch to tie it in nicely with the sentiment.

Supplies used:

A Wicked Art Philosophy Card

Here’s another fun project I created with both Wicked (our current Stamp of the Month set) and our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

Check out the awesome star.  It’s from our *NEW* Milepost Shapes.  It’s a corrugated chipboard star that I painted with our Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint and then sprinkled with our Prisma Glitter.  It is SO shimmery!  Love it.  Fun new technique you should try out!

Converting a Layout into a Card

This weekend at the Santa Clara Scrapbook Expo I designed a Make-n-Take project that nicely converted from a layout into a handmade card.  It’s really cool how it’s super easy to use your scraps from your scrapbooking to create a darling handmade card!

I knew I wanted to use our fabulous *NEW* Roxie papers and I also wanted to incorporate our awesome  *NEW* Cricut Art Philosophy Collection (and man…the word is out on this!  We had TONS of people stopping by asking all about the new exclusive cartridge!)

So on Friday, I did a Layout Make-n-Take.

Live Laugh Love Layout

We used the *NEW* Love Life Stamp set along with our *NEW* Bling Assortment (LOVE these buttons that are in here!!)

And on Saturday, I converted it into a card.

DIY Superhero Party Invitation Details

Superhero Party Invitation

Here are the details for my DIY Superhero Party Invitations

Like I said in my post yesterday, the most important part was to keep it simple; partly since I wasn’t just making one and partly because I have a lot of other things on my plate currently.

Secondly, I  needed it to work for both my ‘lil girl and my ‘lil guy.  Normally, I’d love to have stamped it all, but unfortunately I didn’t have any superhero stamps.  So the next best thing was to use digital stamps!  I got these cuties and some others too from Digi My World.  Cute designs for sure.

I then used our *NEW* Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and cut out the shadow star image at 2-1/2″ in White Daisy.  I cut the plain star image at the same size in Holiday Red and layered it behind the shadow image.  Then matted that combo onto Moonstruck CS.

I matted my darling Superheroes on Black CS.  And finally stamped “It’s Party Time” from our Fanfare Stamp Set.

Inside the invitation it reads:

Calling All Superheroes!

Get here in a flash!

It’s time for {child’s name} birthday bash!

Date, Time, Location & RSVP info

And that’s it!  That’s how my DIY Superhero Party Invitations came together.  Now onto the favors and decorations!  More on those later…

DIY Superhero Party Invitations

Here’s what I came up with for my twins’ Superhero Party Invitations this year. Wanted to keep it very simple.  I was actually impressed that they had a theme that they both agreed on…but it’s definitely a tad bit trickier finding feminine superhero items on the market!

Wedding Thank You Cards

This weekend I finished up some custom wedding invitations and thank you cards.  Feels good to be finished…I designed a fun pocket style invitation that had 2 pockets (1 for the RSVP card and 1 for the map).  I made 100 each of the invitation, coordinating thank you cards and monogram stickers to seal the invitations closed.

Here’s the simple, yet elegant thank you card the bride selected.

I used Friendship (this past February’s Stamp of the Month) and Thank You Stamp Sets to create them.

American Celebration Card with Two-Tone Embossing Technique

July’s Stamp of the Month–American Celebration is the perfect set to celebrate the 4th of July!  Add in the fun two-tone embossing technique and it’s definitely a lot to celebrate.

Here is the card I created using this set along with the two-tone embossing technique.

I’ll be posting a how-to video on this card and how to do the two-tone embossing technique.  So be sure to check back!
